Jerry D. Morris Recreation Center
The $12 million state of the art Campus Rec Center, which opened June 2003, serves as the “heartbeat” of student life at A&M-Commerce. The Morris Recreation Center includes: 45-foot climbing rock, 3-lane jogging track, 4 racquetball courts, 2 basketball courts, large fitness room with cardiovascular and weight equipment, aerobics room, classroom, snack area, and locker rooms. The outdoor area includes: heated leisure pool (beach-type entry, fountains, water tunnel, current channel, bubble jet benches, 3-lap lanes), 2-tier hot tub with water fall, 2 sand volleyball courts, 2 basketball courts, picnic tables, BBQ pits, and a sunbathing area.
The recreation center is named in honor of Dr. Jerry D. Morris, the ninth President of East Texas State University (now Texas A&M University-Commerce), 1987-1997. Dr. Morris served the University effectively for over 27 years. His commitment to developing the talent of faculty, staff and students, and his dedication to the importance of community relations is an enduring tribute to all who enter these doors. Dr. Morris’ portrait hangs in the lobby of the MRC.
Texas A&M University-Commerce is located about one hour drive northeast of the Dallas metroplex.
Commerce is a city of around 8000 people, about fifteen minutes drive north of Interstate Highway 30. The area is a rich combination of rural life - including local music, festivals and other unique entertainment - combined with the nearness of the nation's fifth largest metropolitan area.
If you are visiting Commerce, you will be able to find quality lodging at one of the area hotels. Other nearby cities include Greenville (about twenty minutes drive west), Sulphur Springs (about twenty minutes drive east) and Paris (about one hour drive north). These cities boast a wealth of opportunities for lodging, entertainment and shopping.
